Symposium on

Carbon Nanotubes - bridging the gap

Symposium Chairs: Wolfgang S. Bacsa, Université Paul Sabatier, FR


Carbon nanotubes are one of the most promising building blocks and materials in nanotechnology. The combination of molecular sized diameter with macroscopic length scale leads to new unusual properties. Progress in large scale synthesis, control of their properties, precise positioning and assembling on semiconductor surfaces, electrical connection to electrodes and incorporation in a solid matrix continues to widen their application range.

Recent progress in the understanding of their optical properties gives now the possibility to assign the helicity of an individual tube and test their intrinsic one dimensional electronic property. Improved control of the number of tube walls and size distribution gives the opportunity to reinforce their mechanical stability while maintaining some of their intrinsic properties.

While nanotubes can now be found in electronic packaging materials or parts of your car, display applications and their use for non-volatile memory is under development.
